Have you ever prepared a great unit study on a book you read to your kids, like Little House on the Prairie? You've got it all planned - you will make a corncob doll, build a little covered wagon, create a salt dough map of the US with their travel route on it, and then memorize the words for one of Pa's songs.
It took hours, bu you have all the supplies you need, including printed instructions and everything is laid out and ready to go.
I found a map maker, with the ability to crowdsource the locations. I started adding locations, and invited some others to add from the Classics they are reading. Now I am putting it out there for you to add your Places from the Classics.
I love the wonderful lists of Living Books compiled by Amblesideonline.org. For fans of Charlotte Mason, Classical Education and even Unschoolers, their website is a treasure trove of great resources, even if you don't plan to follow their curriculum.
How can you create the optimal conditions for your children, so that they can learn? The answer will likely be different for each member of your family, so sit down with a blank sheet of paper, and put on your thinking cap.
